Fifty-six volunteers braved the elements on May 14, 2015 when the Amgen Tour of Californiarolled into town. Volunteers helped as Course Marshals, Security Ambassadors, Medical Control Escorts, Team Meal Volunteers, and assisted in the Press Workroom, Media Check-in, and Volunteer Check-In. Despite the inclement weather, volunteers willingly did their share and helped the City give the cyclists, fans, and tour organizers a warm Santa Clarita welcome.
Another 16 volunteers, some from as far away as Big Bear and Costa Mesa, stepped up to help with the Time Trials on May 15, which were moved at the last minute from Big Bear to Santa Clarita because of the weather.
One local volunteer stated, “Thank you…for the unique opportunity to participate in the subject Race. It was a great experience and I was able to see the Race from an entirely different perspective. Keep me in mind for the next one.”
